Norwich City boss Paul Lambert, for the moment at least, will not be looking to Europe for squad strengthening as the Canaries prepare for a season in the Premier League. The Scot has maintained ties with German football following his time as a Borussia Dortmund midfielder.
He told BBC Radio Norfolk: "I know through experience what German football is like.
"I know a lot of people over there, but we have to get a good foothold in the league first and foremost."
He added: "There's no point me bringing people over here and it's going to take them 15 games to get a foothold. I need people to hit the ground running."
Lambert has already targeted seven additions for his newly promoted side.
